This is an amazing video which demonstrates how people could integrate with machines in the future! There was no CGI added to the video after it was filmed, as all the cool effects were created simply by using projections. I just really find it mind-blowing to watch!

I took this picture on Friday night, as we were walking towards a restaurant. The village below is called Oberdorf and is situated in Basel-land, Switzerland.
Once again I am enjoying a pleasant holiday in Switzerland! My family and I celebrated the new year with some friends and it was quite an event. Today we went on a small walk up to the ruins of an old castle, which is situated not too far from where we are staying
New Year Champaign; I did try a bit, but don’t like the taste!
The alps are clearly visible far off in the distance
Over the past few days my addiction for origami has really been revived! There is nothing like the sense of satisfaction when an origami model is completed. Here are some of the models which I put together over the past few days:
Origami Star – 30 pieces of paper.
Estrella Flor – 60 pieces of paper.
If you want a go at making these origami models yourself, here are the instructions which I used:
I really like light art photography; this is where the camera is set to a very long shutter speed (eg. 30 seconds) and patterns are drawn by moving a torch through the air. Unfortunately it is quite difficult to get right. While trying to draw the outline of a shape with the torch, it is way too easy to forget where you’ve already been, therefore getting all the proportions wrong!
Over the weekend there was an unexpected (but welcome) spurt in temperature across Ireland. I already packed away most of my summer clothing, so it was a surprise on Saturday to find that I could go outside without a jacket! I hope the warm weather stays for another while…
Yesterday I tried out some sun-shots; these are pictures which are taken against the sun and cause some interesting lens flares effects. It is quite difficult technique to get right, as it is very easy to completely wash out the picture with the bright sun. Here are two of my better attempts.
